The facile, persona, who DEMANDS SO MUCH LOVE, and gives so little in return.
I often think about the unbalancing act that comes with interacting with a narcissist. Why is the cost so great? What exactly is the exchange that leaves one feeling so empty, abused, used, and spinning in one’s head?
To enter into an interaction with a narcissist is to enter into an unholy, unequal exchange.
Much, so much, will be DEMANDED of you- not requested, not hoped for, but DEMANDED and so little will be given to you in exchange.
You may be tempted to continue to interact with the narcissist, seeking some how, your own relationship homeostasis of equality. That will never happen.
The pull you feel to fill yourself up again is intentionally created by the narcissist, with the sole intent that you will return to him or her with longing to ease your pain.
Don’t do it.
You have nothing to gain from one who gives so little.
